Obamacare architect provides fodder for court challenges

The Hill, July 28, 2014
A major architect of ObamaCare is coming under fire for a video where he seems to support the notion the law was worded to push states to create their own health exchanges. In a 2012 Youtube video that gained attention Friday, Jonathan Gruber, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor, is heard telling an audience the Federal government was refraining from helping states that have not built their own health exchanges to politically pressure them to do so. Gruber was a major architect of Massachusetts RomneyCare and advised the Obama administration in 2009 in developing the Affordable Care Act.
